The City of Quesnel has temporarily fully opened the the Downtown Loop of the Riverfront Trail as Phase 1 of the G.R. Baker Memorial Hospital Redevelopment project has been completed.
“The trail around the hospital may be uneven in places, please use with cautions.” says a release from the City.
Previously, a portion of the Downtown Loop trail which ran along the Fraser River behind the hospital had been closed on Feb. 12 to accommodate redevelopment work. Two detour options were put into place directing trail users to Reid Street, with options to cross at Carson Avenue and Front Street or St. Laurent Avenue and Front Street.
The full Riverfront Trail will remain open until Phase 2 of the redevelopment project begins which is expected to commence in August, at which time the detour will be back in effect.
According to a release form the City, they will post more details about the trail detour at that time.
